"…Could there be a Time-War?

If time was the batteground of the future, what would it look like? Would there be massive armies of futuristic warriors blasting each other with rayguns? Or would it be spy vs. spy type of warfare? Could there even be a war over the course of different time periods, without destroy the totality of the universe? Certainly any soldiers of the future that were deployed to another time period would have to be careful when engaging in any type of gunfight…one stray round could change the future in a vast unseen ways, butterfly effect, indeed. The main reason behind the use time travel as a weapon would to even the odds in a losing conflict or even changing the conditions to bring about their adversaries. When really thought of temporal warfare, it brought a quote of President Kenned from 1962: "this is another type of warfare- new in its intensity, ancient its origin-war by guerrillas, subversives, insurgents, assassins; war by ambush instead of combat, by infiltration instead of aggression, by eroding and exhausting the enemy instead of engaging him. It preys on unrest."…"

If there is/was/will be a Time War going on, would we know about it?

Aye, what if there was already a time war and we won? How's that for a Fermi Paradox great filter?

Or, the dinosaurs rose up to be a threat to galactic society and they got a big rock dropped on them 65 million years ago 'just to be sure'? After all, changing something a decade ago may not significantly alter the timeline. Changing something eons ago might have a major ripple effect due to all those butterflies.
